If you're looking for great atmosphere or unique food this is it: try appetizers and a drink though. The food is unique but not really something an average person would look forward to for the money . The appetizers though ? Really good !! And to see the city from up there was amazing ! Our waitress was SO good... More

My fiancé and I went here thanks to Devour Downtown in 2016. He had never eaten there before so we were both very excited. I love how the circular setup feels very intimate. Other reviews here have lots of people disappointed in the food but honestly we thought our food was fantastic. He got steak and I got salmon. We... More

My girlfriend and I celebrated our birthday's at Eagle's Nest. I was a little worried how we would like it based on all the reviews. Well, the reviews are spot on. Very average service and food but the view is awesome and that's why we went here! The chairs as one review mentioned are ridiculous. Very low to the table... More

I read several reviews about the food quality but decided to take a chance for the Holiday View. My wife and I had leisurely dinner while restaurant made two 360 degree rotations to see all of the Indianapolis sky line in the evening. Our server Beatrice was outstanding and made thoughtful suggestions. My wife's prime rib was excellent. I had... More

What could be more satisfying than sitting back in your chair sipping on your beverage of choice watching the sights of the city go by? The Eagle's Nest does not just offer dinner, it offers an experience to remember. From the glass elevator up to the restaurant to the friendly and attentive server, we enjoyed the atmosphere even before taking... More

Was told immediately upon asking that bar was full. Asked how long of wait and were told 'just full, no waiting.' Looked, tables were open around lounge. Guess just didn't want business. How is it possible to know that at 9p, nobody (including families in the bar area) would leave. Then noticed dinner tables were sparse as well. Inquired about... More

Service was great, Food was good, the bread is delicious! Highly recommend timing your dinner so you can have a bit of daylight time and evening lights as well.

While the atmosphere is still wonderful (who can resist a 360-degree view of the city?), the food and service are only adequate.

My wife & I went for our anniversary. As soon as we stepped off the elevator we started to notice scuff marks on the wall's, dirty glass windows and screws sticking out of the drywall. The chair I was seated at needed maintenance. The food was really bad. The drinks & the view are the only thing worth seeing here!
